Cold-Case Christianity for Kids
"Cold-Case Christianity"
J. Warner Wallace and Susie Wallace with Rob Suggs

Between the ages of 8 and 12, kids often start to wonder if Christianity is true. In Cold-Case Christianity for Kids, detective J. Warner Wallace draws readers into the thrill of high-stakes investigation by showing them how to think rather than telling them what to think. In this children's companion to the bestselling Cold-Case Christianity, detective Wallace gets kids excited about testing witnesses, examining the evidence, and investigating the case for Christianity. Includes author illustrations and links to a website (coldcasechristianityforkids.com) where kids can download activities, fill in case notes, and earn a certificate of merit. 

Detective Wallace gets kids excited about testing witnesses, examining the evidence, and investigating the case for Christianity.

The book starts out with a group of children going to a junior police academy program and learning how to be how detective. One of the boys finds an old skateboard and brings it class with him the next day. The children work together with the training detective to solve where the skateboard came from and how it ended up in the shed on the school property. While they begin the case of the skateboard, Detective Jeffries tells the children not to be “know-it-alls” about the case and he then asks them if they can think of an example of people being a “know-it-all”. One of the cadets speaks up and says that he thinks his neighbors are “know-it-alls” because they believe in God. Detective Jeffries says that Jason is being a “know-it-all” because he believes that there is no way that there is a God. Throughout the rest of the book the case of the skateboard and the case about God coincide with each other. As the cadets use the detective skills that they are learning to solve the skateboard case, they use those same skills to prove that God is real.

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. As the Children’s Church director at my church, I am always looking for resources and visuals that I can use with the children. This book gave me several good ideas that I am looking forward to using in the future. The worksheets that you can download to go with this book are great and would be perfect for children eight-years-old or older. The logic and detective skills that children will learn by reading this book can be applied to anything.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher. No review positive or negative was required. All opinions are my own.
